Congratulations! You are heading into an exciting adventure. You can make your entry into parenthood a little less hectic by planning now and gathering some of the items you will need. You will be too busy (and probably too tired) to do much shopping after the baby arrives.
These tips will help you get started. Some items you may need to buy, but do not be shy about taking donations of clothes and other items from family and friends. Getting an early start can allow you to stock up over time, which might be easier on your wallet.
Follow-up care is a key part of your treatment and safety. Be sure to make and go to all appointments, and call your doctor or nurse call line if you are having problems.
